In Other NewsHi everyone! I've missed you all! It's been ages since I've been on here or posted anything.
Here's a little update:
November 10th, 2011 I was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer. I went through treatment, and finished radiation about 3 months ago.
I'm doing well, and I'm learning how to live my life to the fullest at this point.
After losing my Mom to cancer 2 years prior, this was all quite a shock. So much has happened, and I have grown so much as a person.
I'm definitely NOT the same Katy I used to be. She's gone.
The girl who was constantly depressed has left the building.
There's no time for that bullshit anymore.
Since treatment has ended I've been enjoying my new hair, and also my new "life partner" Portimer. No, he's not a person, he's a chemo port in my chest. I will have him for a while, until the coast is clear.
Unfortunately the type of cancer I have is very aggressive, but also like to recur in the time span of two years or less. Everyday I worry and feel anxious

Design an Outfit! Contest
Someone once said there was a huge wardrobe in Fenrir's Tower. Much bigger than any ever imagined, with many different- and sometimes eccentric- clothes for men, women, children. There was no purpose in having all those clothes, if not for satisfying his obsession of collecting things.
This contest is about designing a new outfit for my character, Lilith, and Fenrir--the-2nd's character Fenrir! Read about them in these refs and pull out of that huge wardrobe their new clothes!

Did you know? (Authors and writers read this!!)Hi guys!Did you know? (Authors and writers read this!!)9 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
I recently discovered something very interesting. As I didn't know this, I thought some of you might also not know this, thus it could be helpful (even life changing) to share this info.
Did you know that the key to selling your book successfully, you need to start with the marketing process of your book months in advance. The ideal is to start with this before even start writing the book, but it will still be effective if you start a few months before your manuscript is done. You need to have a battle plan about how you're going to sell your book, before you are finished writing it. Here's a few articles on this marketing strategy that might help you make the difference between selling a thousand books and zero.

Art and perfectionismDear, deviantart fellow artistsArt and perfectionism8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Perfectionism can be a good and a bad thing at the same time. We strive for it, but sometimes the result doesn't exceed our expectations. And that's okay.
Not every single artwork you make has to be a masterpiece. Make some sketches, speedpaints, studies - just do something. See your flaws, be aware of them - and work on them. Don't put yourself down with negativity. It never helps. It takes time to learn, to gain new skills and make art. Through many hours of work we achieve what we want. And it takes time.
It's so easy to give up. To think - what's the point in doing this, if the artwork is never perfect. Art doesn't have to be always perfect, it has to be made. We have to get used to the fact that we'll never be good enough - there is a beauty in that, because we have something to strive for, to experience and observe.
Making art is difficult and yet it's fun. En

The common misconceptionWhen giving workshops last weekend, I was confronted with something at least remarkable.The common misconception9 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I had a random chat with a girl that apparently knew me from DeviantArt. We a friendly conversation about art such. It wasn't that strange, until she concluded her message with.
"It's nice talking to you. I always wanted to know what you were like. You know... since you draw so well"
And I was like... "Huh? What?"
Some people see me as a talented writer or artist, others (including myself) raise the bar even higher.
But regardless of what you see as skilled or not, I don't think there's such a thing as 'them' and 'us' in the art world. It's too small of a world. We're too alike. And I think most of us aren't exactly prone to living a celebrity lifestyle anyway. Bitches & bling don't match well with the usually quiet lifestyle an artist prefers.
When I started doing painting, I looked up to many of the lo

A Beginner's Guide to Offering Commissions OnlineI decided to write this journal because in the last month alone, I had about five young artists ask me this question in one form or another: "How should I go about offering commissions?"A Beginner's Guide to Offering Commissions Online8 months ago in Personal More Like This
This seemingly easy question can actually be quite difficult to answer. The first time I was asked this question, I expected to write only a paragraph response. I was shocked to find that once I had finished writing my response, I had been writing for almost a half hour and had written five paragraphs. Why is this not a simple question? I think the answer lies in the fact that how to offer commissions is not altogether intuitive. I know that when I began to offer commissions, I was at a complete loss. It took me a few years before I got into the swing of things. Even now I make mistakes. So, without further ado I present a beginner's guide, built on my many mistakes, many accomplishments, and 5 years of experience!

Allison's Omniverse Adventure Contest Closed!!Allison's Omniverse Adventure Contest Closed!!9 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The possibilities of lay out there was endless, and Allison knew this. Her heart fluttered at the thought of the adventures she could have. Ones similar to those that were told by patrons of her bar.
Allison Marie Rosewood, my OC, has the ability to travel the omniverse through the use of an ancient relic she calls The Skeleton Key. At first her travel was limited to the megatropolis known as Parallexus, but as stories of wondrous places were told to her she could no longer contain the urge to go out and explore further into the omniverse.
For this contest, you will be drawing a place in the omnieverse that Allison has gone to. I am really leaving this contest open for people's imaginations to run wild. The location can be anywhere and she can be doing just about anything that would within reason of her doing it. She can be in a world

Greetings to the World once again!
So I’ve decided to hold a drawing contest for my Female OCs because I’m that nice! (Okay girls you can stop hugging me, let me explain the contest first before kissing my cheeks)
What to draw: I would like you to design Yukatas for my OCs Primrose, Stacey and/or Laura.
Stacey (Yes Stacey is a girl even if she looks like a boy)
Now for those who don't know what a Yukata looks like, look it up.
They are very similar to Kimonos which are usually worn at special occasions.
The only difference is that Yukatas are worn in the Summer!
